Billy Bragg “Lay Down Your Weary Tune”
from Chimes of Freedo: the Songs of Bob Dylan (Universal 2012) N —This is from a very cool new box set tribute to Dylan - first I've seen it on the shelves, don't know when it's released, but I think I want it. The person at KDHX who burned the copy for our library misidentified this cut as being by Elvis Costello.
The Clash “Jail Guitar Doors”
from Super Black Market Clash (CBS 1993) —I remember getting this record in the mail back in the day, as it was only available as an import 7" single and I couldn't find it anywhere.
Mike and the Sensations “There's Nothing I Can Do About It”
from Don't Sell Your Soul (Ubiquity 2011) N —A sweet little soul ballad from a group I never heard before. So much rare soul is getting unearthed these days, my mind spins trying to hear even a tiny percentage of it.
Mose Allison “Lost Mind”
from Local Color (Ojc 1957) —If you would be so kind as to help me find my mind, I want to thank you in advance. Nice.
Glen Campbell “A Thousand Lifetimes”
from Ghost on the Canvas (Surf Dog Records 2011) N —An amazing song to be sung by someone in Campbell's condition, facing Alzheimer's - "Each breath I take is one that I will never take for granted."
Henry Threadgill & Make a Move “Don't Turn Around” (PI 2001) —Mr. Threadgill deserves to be one of our most revered musicians, and yet you can't hardly even find his music. This is where jazz can go when it doesn't worry about trends.
Choc Stars “Kembela”
from ...Unknown Album (Unknown) —A spin-off soukous group from Zaiko Langa Langa, who I played last week. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of the very rare CD I borrowed to get this song.
Tim Buckley “Song For Janie”
from Tim Buckley (Asylum 1966) —Tim Buckley went through tremendous musical changes in his short career, and I like most of them, but push come to shove, I gotta go with the early pop stuff.
Mavis Staples “Koochie Koochie Koochie”
from Blax-Plosion (Charly 2001) —One of the strangest things Mavis Staples ever sang, but you gotta admit it's seductively funky.
Imelda May “Bury My Troubles”
from Mayhem (Decca 2010) N —You can see her digging Pokey LaFarge in at least one shot on the Jools Holland New Year's Eve special clips that have made the rounds. Nice.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
